31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.

1 Corinthians 11:31 Meaning and Commentary

1 Corinthians 11:31

For if we would judge ourselves
Examine, try, and prove ourselves as above directed, before we eat and drink; or condemn ourselves, by confessing, acknowledging, and mourning over sin, and by repentance for it; or separate ourselves from the company of profane sinners, come out from among them, and touch not their unclean things; or join with them in their unfruitful works of darkness:

we should not be judged;
by the Lord; he would not inflict these diseases, sicknesses, and death.

1 Corinthians 11:31 In-Context

29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep.
31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
33 So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
